Virtual Sunday Worship

The building lights may be off, the Lord’s light continues to shine bright at Simpsonwood! Just because we are physically apart doesn’t mean we can’t be together spiritually. Remember, Jesus said, “Where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them” (Matthew 18:20). Our church is our community, not our building.

Rev. John Purrington and the 8:45 Band will be bringing the power of worship straight to your homes with our Virtual Sunday Worship Service. You can catch our service beginning at 10:00am on Sunday mornings on our Facebook Page and our YouTube page.

May 31: “Home”
Life is oft characterized by past loss, fractured relationships, and longing for hope.  In this journey, we search for significance.  Jesus meets our deepest needs with the promise of journeying home with Him.

May 24: “Heard”
Like this Greek woman, we often find ourselves isolated with no one willing to listen and identify with our deepest needs.  Jesus hears our cries that fall otherwise on deaf ears.  Moreover, Jesus is not burdened by our cries, he makes them his own!

May 17: “Healed”
In this short sermon series, we look at Jesus’ encounter with 3 women in distress. In this week’s story, Jesus heals a woman who has been bleeding for 12 years. We, like this woman, often exhaust our resources, physical, emotional and psychological trying to heal from things only Jesus can heal. Jesus is willing. Jesus heals the bleeding hardships we have carried for years.

April 26: “A Long Road That is Short or A Short Road That is Long”
Rev. John Purrington notes the similarities of scriptural desert wanderings and our current spiritual journey. As God’s people, we are called to keep our eyes on Him, not the obstacles.

March 22: “Catholic Spirit”
If our hearts are right with God, we are free to walk and serve hand in hand with one another. What unites us is always greater than what threatens to divide us.
